Organize your Home Office

Home office organizing

In 2020, working from home #WFH became the norm, even school from home for your kiddos too! Never has a functional space to take care of your bills, budget and schedule been so important. Plus creating a cheery, inviting space to perform that work not only uplifts your spirits but can help increase productivity.

Today’s Goal: A beautiful and inviting workspace where you can address work quickly and efficiently.

  1. Take a “before” photo.
  2. Remove and put away any items that belong in other rooms.
  3. Collect loose papers. (save for tomorrow’s task)
  4. Sort and #declutter > Empty, sort and organize all desk drawers using small containers or boxes. Keep only office supplies and items that you use frequently or can use up in the course of a year. (Donate your excess supplies to a school, church or local non-profit.)
  5. Organized office supplies into smaller containers. Put only frequently used items on the desktop, and all others go inside the drawers.
  6. Dust, clean and vacuum your desk/office area. Use compressed air to clean your keyboard. (don’t eat at the desk anymore, ok?)
  7. Organized your cords using zip ties and label each.
  8. Hang a bulletin board and display photos and inspirational quotes.
  9. Decorate and beautify! Add a plant, or vacation photos to keep you relaxed. However, be careful NOT to add more clutter to your workspace.
  10. Make sure your chair is comfortable, adjustable and ergonomic and that the space is well-lit and easy to navigate.
  11. Please share your “before/after” photos of how your project went for you in your stories on Instagram tagging me with @organizedbyburley or on facebook @organizedburley. I’d love to see your results and answer any questions that you might have!
